want to take you to virginia where the president is appearing with former president bill clinton. let's listen. >> it was great to hear the dave matthews band again. [ cheers and applause ] >> but, as you can see, i have given my voice in the service of my president. [ cheers and applause ] >> but i had the honor of introducing the president tonight and started setting up his speech. and i want to tell you that four years ago when he ran, both h l hillary and i worked very hard. we did, together, over a hundred appearances. but i am much more enthusiastic about barack obama's election tonight than i was even four years ago. there are five simple reasons. first of all, in a time torn by etilogical warfare, he knows any of us together works a lot better than if you're on your own. he knows that an economy that builds a middle class and gives poor people an honorable way to work their way into it is a lot better than four more years have trickled down. we've been there, we've done that. he knows that a budget based on arithmetic is a lot better than one based on illusion. and he knows that

president bill clinton said today. take a listen to this. >> sure. >> and then we went to florida last night, and he got up this morning and called me, he said, i got to go back right now. this storm is getting out of hand, i got to handle it, and i said, mr. president, that is the right call. thank you for doing that. >> michael, if we've learned one thing about this president, it is that he is steadfast and strong in a crisis. it doesn't matter if he's commissioning the killing of bin laden or leading emergency planning at a time like this, does it? >> no, it doesn't, and it's one of the advantages of being president at a time like this. and i think -- >> but, michael, i would -- i'm thinking of the contrast between this president and, of course, the former president who was embarrassing, as you will remember, george w. bush, in relation to hurricane katrina. >> lessons learned. katrina was a lesson throughout the federal government of what not to do, not just at the presidential level, but operationally well below the president. and even for the states, quite frankly. the governor a

outside interest groups are spending $143 million. that's more than both bill clinton and george h.w. bush raised for their entire presidential campaigns 20 years ago. we're joined by bill cohen, a columnist for bloomberg view and the author of "money and power, how goldman sachs came to rule the world." what do you make of the amount of money that's being spent, but specifically the so-called social welfare organizations who are completely unaccountable and completely unidentifiable because nobody knows who they are, they spent millions of dollars and 83% of the spending has been used to attack democrats. >> well, once again it's the lack of accountability that we see across government. we see it across wall street. to be able to spend that kind of money targeting your message against democrats and not know who is behind it i don't think is doing our democracy any good. and i think, you know, once we get through this election cycle, i think that's one thing that we need to take a new look at and see if we can possibly change that. there was that incredibly good program on front line

upgraded to a cabinet level position under bill clinton, and then reorganized under homeland security to an ancillary position within the broader framework there. so the problem is when you have competing forms of disaster for our attention, one which is natural, another one which is so-called manmade, you have a kind of moral triage going on in the government and that's problematic. the democrats have got it right. you put fema on its own bottom, allow it to address federal emergencies, and then you deliver resources to states and to local governments from the central organization of the government. yes, you're right. i think julian epstein is absolutely right. the democrats have been inclined to help those who are in need, and this is a challenge to us and a choice for americans here. what kind of government do you want? one that stands behind you when you are in trouble, or the one that kicks you to the curb and pours salt in your already open wounds and tells you you're on your own? that's the kind of choice we're facing here. >> michael makes a really good point, martin. 2005 with k
